The Environment Agency is looking for volunteer lock keepers to help keep Britain's busiest river - the River Thames - running smoothly.
Working alongside professional lock and weir keepers, volunteers will have the opportunity to spend their days outdoors, meeting the public, helping boats navigate the locks and gaining real hands-on experience in operating the locks along the iconic River Thames.
On-the-job training will be provided for all successful candidates, as well as some branded uniform. The Environment Agency will also provide the best opportunities for volunteers to increase their knowledge of the River Thames while building on their passion for the environment.
